The SNES version of Aladdin is not included. It’s only both versions for the Lion King. Which isn’t a big deal because you’re getting the superior Genesis version anyways.;)

The collection will feature versions of the games from the Genesis, Game Boy and Super Game Boy releases, as well as the Super Nintendo version of The Lion King. Additionally, the Disney Classic Games collection features behind-the-scenes interviews and art galleries highlighting the original development of the games.

I played Genesis Aladdin and loved it.  I remember that being the good version for some reason.  But I never played the SNES version, so I think I remembering magazine articles or something.

 

The SNES version is a totally different game with distinct mechanics and levels. It’s a fine game in its own right but I find the controls and pacing to be more sluggish but then that’s maybe a bit deliberate? I prefer the tighter action feel of its Genesis counterpart. The visuals and music is a no contest. 

 

Even Shinji Mikami knows what’s up....

Though Parry says he prefers the SNES one.:) The debate never ends.

I like this video and the relevant portion begins at 13:00.

 

 

 

The fact that Disney animators worked on the Genesis version really shows.  The animation is really good, including the backgrounds, even if the colors are a bit more muted.  Yep, I'd stick with the Genesis version if forced to choose.  It would have been nice to see the Sega CD version make it out as they could have pulled music straight from the movie.

Trailer confirming no SNES version of Aladdin.

 

 

1080p sounds nice but its really all in how well they handle the scaling. They could offer a proper 4x integer scale of the 320x224 resolution and ad horizontal interpolation to reduce shimmering for screen scrolling. That would be the correct method of doing this. Or they could do a 5x scale in the same way (judging by the flat screen TV image, that's a 5x scale). The problem is that most developers get this simple shit wrong and end up throwing these ROMS on a disc/cart or download with a 4.5x scale, zero interpolation and the games are a shimmering mess. It's nice that there's some good screen options but most of these types of retro releases should really offer a number of scaling and interpolation options. (yes, I'm a nitpicky retro freak!).

With the Mega SD release (the Sega Genesis/CD flash cart) now supporting MSU-1 type functionality like the SD2SNES Pro, you can bet some intrepid gamer will be releasing an hacked Aladdin ROM with the original movie soundtrack.

 

If you don't know what MSU-1 is (or a Mega SD for that matter), see here:

I had not got round to buying the previous compilation of Aladdin and Lion King so this is very pleasing as I remember lamenting the absence of Jungle Book the last time, and the Capcom version of Aladdin is terrific.

 

Those who did already purchase the previous release will be able to purchase a DLC upgrade for $10.

 

The full release will retail for $30:
